With so much going on at the moment, we thought it was a good time to publish another weekly wrapup. Take a squiz at what's been going on around the traps...who knows, you might even get a mention!
If you've booked a Gecko's trip, you can head to our Meet Others app to see all the awesome girls and boys you'll be travelling with! Either search the list for your trip name and dates, or if it's not there yet add it in. It's a great way to get to know everyone before you head off.
This gorgeous image accompanied a blog post: 6 movies that will inspire you to travel. Can you think of any that aren't on the list? Leave them in the comments section below, or on the blog.

"Hi Cody, oohh I wish I was heading to Africa in July! I just had a chat to our Africa Manager and they advised that all our tours are running as per usual in Zimbabwe. In fact she said they are very popular at the moment. Have a great trip. Cheers, Leigh
